At the Cusp of Solving Cognitive Aging?
  It’s Brain Awareness Week, and we’ll be hearing about breakthroughs in basic science that could lead to big advances in how we live. Yet, most of the discoveries will require decades of further work, before they help people. But, what if we had a time machine and could travel ahead to see which of these discoveries actually becomes important in our lives? Well, we don’t have a time machine, but the two of us do have decades of experience in turning basic science discoveries into products that change lives.  We want to tell you about that journey — from what we discovered in basic researc...

8 Practical Ways to Keep Your Mind Sharp
Dr. Michael Merzenich conducted the seminal experiments that led to the discovery of lifelong plasticity — that the brain changes chemically, physically, and functionally based on sensory and other inputs at any age. Last year, Dr. Merzenich was made a Kavli Laureate, the highest honor in neuroscience. He has been elected to both the US National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine. There’s a lot you can do to engage the brain’s machinery in ways that help keep it healthy as an organ. The brain’s plasticity — its ability to change not just functionally, but physical...

It adds to a growing body of research suggesting that mindfulness affects not only teacher stress, but also interpersonal interactions that can have an important impact on learning. “I had a very strong suspicion that emotional reactivity was interfering with a teacher’s ability to be their best, and that the solution wasn’t just a matter of teaching more skills, it was really a matter of teaching them to self-regulate so they could...

10 Finalists announced for the $1M Global Teacher Prize
These are the 10 best teachers in the world (Global Teacher Prize announcement): “We’ve all had teachers who have inspired us, who have made a difference to our lives. Teachers have the power to make or break lives. A great lesson can inspire a passion for a subject that lasts a lifetime, while lacklustre teaching can kill any desire for learning. Teachers who make a significant difference in their students’ lives – sometimes against all odds – deserve to be celebrated. The Global Teacher Prize does just that, awarding $1 million to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contributi...
